This is one of my favorite supercheap and superfast meals – has everyone already thought of this? I take whatever Chinese leftovers I can scrounge up – mine or someone elses’s as long as they’re vegetarian – and I add up to a 10 ounce pack of Dollar store broccoli to them, and – voila! (what’s the Chinese translation for that?) Instant yummy and pretty healthy dinner – yummy because you have all the flavors from a Chinese restaurant, but way healthier because the ubiquitous oils are spread throughout a whole dinner instant of concentrated in a small portion.
If you’ve ordered (and I hope you have – it would be a great choice!) steamed tofu and veggies with sauce on the side such as the one dish in the picture, featured on most Chinese menus in the vegetarian section, you can add just a little of the sauce for flavor but use Bragg’s liquid aminos, low sodium soy sauce, sriracha sauce, etc. for the main kick.
For extra bonus points, order brown rice on the side instead of white if your Chinese or Asian restaurant offers it as an option – otherwise you can make your own.
People usually aren’t as crazy about brown rice but I have a couple secrets in that department – But that’s a blog for another time!….
The name Enchilada comes from the spanish verb enchilar which mean “to add chili pepper to”. In this recipe we will be creating a savory filling wrapped in tortillas and topped off with a delicious chili sauce!

This is a pretty obvious recipe but many people haven’t had the treat of a non-meat BLT yet – and that’s a shame! “Fake bacon” is available at most grocery stores now, and has come a long way in terms of flavor . Just make sure to read the list of ingredients – many companies put egg white in to make it crispier. Why make just a regular sandwich with these ingredients when the flavors are so good you can make it a double decker?
What’s tropical about this recipe, you ask? Absolutely nothing except the fact that it’s a really simple – leaving you lots of lounging time in the hammock! Ahhhh.
Nice paired with an easy cold salad such as tossed dark greens, a healthy cole slaw, 3-bean salad, pickled beets, or tomatoes or cucumbers in vinaigrette.
